Donated Merchandise from Championship Sporting Events
- Good360 leverages its background, expertise and track record. Especially in logistics and donations management and distribution. For that’s in order to provide a valuable service to sports organizations. Especially those that have merchandise left over from teams who do not win playoff games or championships.
- For they are able to provide their partners with the peace of mind. I mean that those branded items will be handled appropriately and distributed. All in a way that eliminates the risk of those goods finding their way back into US channels.
- This is their fourth year partnering with the NFL. In addition and last fall, they partnered with MLB. That was for the first time. All to distribute excess goods after the World Series
How does it work (with the NFL)?
Before a big game or series, the inventory is at various controlled points. I mean around the US. Shortly after the event, details about the exact products available will be sent to Good360. So at that time, they will notify appropriate nonprofit members. So I mean within their network. Finally and then confirm who has a need. Especially for that particular type of product (for example, shirts, sweatshirts, hats).
Once they confirm the recipient nonprofit partner(s), the merchandise is shipped. All to a domestic location. That’s from the various controlled points and stored. All until there is enough product (through this donation and other sources) to fill a container. It is then shipped to approved overseas locations. Then it’s distributed to people in need.
